Zach Fruchtengarten guided me through a challenging divorce with a high level of professionalism, grace and poise. He handled my best interest through the course and always reflected what was best for our children. I truly believe he allowed me to move through this event with success and provided me a chance to start a new chapter in life.

Zach took over my divorce case after my then current lawyer was unresponsive to my case. He made the transition very easy, kept me informed and was extremely professional. He had my case settled very quickly with the desired outcome. Although I'm sure he has several clients, he was always clear and accurate on the details of my case. I highly recommend Zach!

When I realized I needed a family law attorney, I called another legal professional whom I know and trust. He had fielded many calls like mine before, and had already done the homework for his clients, so he could make a sound recommendation. He suggested I contact Zach Fruchtengarten.
The process of marital disentanglement can feel and be very complicated. Emotions run high. There is fear of the unknown. And one must make very important personal and financial decisions along the way that can have effects for a lifetime. From start to finish, Zach was a steadfast advocate for the best interests of me and my children.
Zach’s approach was steady and grounded in integrity throughout the entire process. He was professional and respectful in every communication – every call, every letter, every interaction – while fervently supporting my interests. And Zach didn’t just “act” on my behalf. He took the time to listen. And I truly felt that he understood the details of my situation, and me as a unique individual. He knew when I needed information and exactly how to deliver it. He was clear and firm in providing professional guidance, but also compassionate. Both Zach (and Alison, Zach’s assistant) were there to provide support during this stressful personal time. This was truly priceless.
While my financial situation was not complicated, Zach used his keen sense of business acumen to help me move through both the big picture financial decisions, as well as the multitude of minor details, that collectively, can have a big impact. Real estate issues. Dependency deductions. Child support. Life insurance. Summer camps. College education. The list goes on and on. No stone was left unturned. I obviously made investments in Zach’s time to help me move through these important matters, because I could not do it alone. And it was a very sound investment.
Every interaction I had with the Gevurtz Menashe team was incredibly professional and courteous. They did not miss a beat. And everyone who goes through this process called divorce wants it to be over as quickly as possible. I was very fortunate to have Zach and his team working on my behalf. They were ALL incredibly responsive, and able to keep the process moving, so I could move on with parenting my children and start a new phase life.
I am very grateful to have found Zach and Alison. Their professionalism was incredible and they were genuinely kind throughout such a very difficult time. I highly recommend them to anyone.
